What do I do with the Silicone pouches?

Your pouches will need returning to my warehouse no later than 7 days from receiving your delivery. To stop reposting them slipping your mind I’ll send you 2 email reminders. If you forget to return the pouches, I’ll still get your next order out to you - but unfortunately, I’ll need to add a surcharge of £4/pouch+£2/pouch admin fee which will be charged to your debit card.

Of course, I’ll happily refund the £4/pouch surcharge if the pouches are returned.

Step 1

Rinse and dry silicone pouches; seal pouches with the black sliding seal.

Step 2

DO NOT FOLD the silicone pouches; place them into the Business Reply Envelope, peel and seal to close the envelope securely. DO NOT REMOVE the paper insert – I won’t be able to identify the pouches have been returned by you, and the system will show you have not returned them.

If you have removed this label by accident, write your full name and postcode on the envelope so I can identify they’re from you.

Step 3

4 pouches or less

4 silicone pouches or less will fit neatly into your nearest postbox. Just pop them in and your good to go! You can find your nearest postbox here https://postboxmap.com/en

Remember that all your return postage is already paid for – so sending the pouches back is FREE to you.
